Won't be going to Alexandria. Not much for organizations. It seems the people that are raising the lower end deer have been raising deer a long time. Most of them don't care to change. I don't understand it either. Reminds me of my dad. A part of his everyday routine was to chase cows back into the pasture almost every evening before milking. This went on for years. It took 15-30 minutes almost every night. It only took 3 hours to fix the fence after he died.

Where you located Jim? I am looking for bred does from time to time.

Thanks Memory Lane, Arrowed1 what is hard for me to understand is Why deer farmers dont upgrade their genetics when they can do is very reasonable * I put an ad on the MN deer farmers website for this years doe fawns * *I included as straw of Simply Amazing, Ammuntion or Little Lakota * They fawns were priced very low and I never got one call yet! *Those farmers could be raising bigger deer in 2 or 3 yrs, getting more money and they would rather keep raising what they have???? *How can they keep afloat? *I'm just wondering I guess! *Thanks again Memory Lane, *JIM S

I agree , those are some good looking deer. I here ya. I can't understand that they don't upgrade old inferior genetics. I don't think the desire to make money is a high priority. As I said earlier I use my doe fawns as a bargaining chip when I am buying bucks from those farms. Most times they don't want them and I have to push a bit hard.

We harvested about 50 does on the preserve here last fall and completely started anew with our foundation does. Our genetic has a lot of the same names as yours with a heavier influence on Rolex , matrix , Lakota , Hydro Ax , Noble , Amos , Big Attitude , and recently Bone Collector , Big Cletus , and Sudden Explosion.

We have really made strides with our Mule Deer adding postmortem semen draws for AI from 264" and 251" bucks. The mule deer is the real growth market for our hunt preserve. We are keeping our mule deer herd closed as I enjoy not having a local competitor in that market. The learning curve has been very lengthy.

Mule deer are definitely a challenge. They are always trying to find a new way to die. It took a long time to figure out a good feed program and it seems you are continuously medicating for something. Very rewarding when it all works.
